Los Angeles Rams are taking NFL audibles to a new level

The Los Angeles Rams have gone from one of the worst teams in the NFL to one of the best teams in the league in the space of a season thanks mostly to the work of their first-year head coach Sean McVay.

The Rams are currently sitting at the top of the NFC West with a 7-2 record after nine games played, and they look well on their way to booking themselves a spot in the playoffs for the first time since the 2004 season.

Unless someone pops up from out of nowhere, McVay is almost a guarantee to win Coach of the Year at the end of season awards and the likes of quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley are thriving under his offensive scheme.

The youngest head coach in modern NFL history has brought fresh ideas to Los Angeles this season, which is one of the many reasons why they're in the position which they find themselves in at this stage of the year, and it looks as though everybody is having a great time playing for him.

A prime example of this fact is the audibles which Goff was heard calling when he was mic'd up while under center for the Rams in their Week 10 game against the Houston Texans, which they managed to win 33-7.

As you can see in the video below, the second-year quarterback can be heard shouting the audibles 'Tupac', 'Obama', 'Elvis' and 'Ric Flair' which must have thrown the Texans' defense off in their attempts to stop one of the hottest offenses in the NFL this season from operating.

These audibles must have worked, as Goff finished the game with 25-of-37 passes completed for 355 yards and three touchdowns and zero interceptions, setting a new career-high in passing in back-to-back games with seven touchdowns over that span as well.

Keep your ears alert for any crazier audible names when the Rams play in an exciting matchup against the Minnesota Vikings this weekend that could have a big effect on where McVay's team is seeded in the playoffs if they qualify.
